Star of the expo

Just three weeks old and this little guy is already a celebrity. He and his equally colorful mother are stalled next to the ApHC booth at the Idaho Horse Expo in Nampa this weekend. Kids can’t resist and the adults use him as an excuse to come closer for a chat. Long-time Appaloosa breeder Gene Winchester is providing the horses and helping with the exhibit. The Saturday weather is supposed to be perfect for folks who want to get out and enjoy the event.

Update: The colt does have an official name – Owyhee Thunder. The dam is Betsy Ross, a granddaughter of Cowboy Justice. The sire is No Pretense, a grandson of ApHC Reserve World Champion Pretentious Me.

In addition to a trade show and other exhibits, the expo includes seminars, a silent auction horse sale, stallion avenue and lots of activities for the kids. The Idaho Horse Council is the official host.

    Glad to see Apps on display at the Idaho Expo. We were at the Midwest Horse Fair in Madison Wi. and in the display of breeds their were NO Appaloosas. How terrible! There had always been in the past. We cannot promote our breed if no one see them.
